WORTHINGTON (LEARFIELD) — The union representing workers at the J-B-S pork plant in Worthington said the plant is planning to reopen Wednesday after it shut down due to a sharp increase in COVID-19 cases.

The U-F-C-W Local 6-6-3 said the “kill side” of the plant will open following an executive order from President Donald Trump mandated that meatpacking and poultry plants reopen or remain open.

Officials at J-B-S authored a long list of precautions that will be taken to keep personnel safe and healthy.
